When modern Zionism started in 1897, there were already many varieties. They shared the main goal of the creation of an independent Jewish state, which was achieved in 1948. Over 70 years later, “Zionism” has become a controversial accusation. Is Zionism just Israeli nationalism, or is there still relevance to the idea for non-Israeli Jews? [iTunes…
 
If this life is the only life we know, how do we find comfort after loss? Death has always defined the humancondition, but are we any better at dealing with it after all this time?

Our problems are so large, and our powers seem so limited – what can one person or one community do? Facingearlier tragedies, the Jewish people trusted both supernatural providence and human effort.

The Jews have been called “the ever-dying people.” Each generation is convinced it is the last. Yet we are stillhere and, like our ancestors, we must answer new challenges. Balancing continuity and change is a Jewishtradition and a key to Jewish survival. As is hope. [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast directly in iTunes. [RSS MP3] Add the Kol Hadash…

It’s been said that “war is the continuation of politics by other means.” Today politics IS war: opponents are enemies, issues are black or white, the other side is not just wrong but evil. In Israel, in America, in Europe, civil society strains at the seams. We have also seen this story before, and we need to change the ending. [iTunes] Subscribe …
 
Public expressions of hate are rising, and a rising tide lifts all bigotries. Even if numbers remain small, the haters are louder and bolder. Synagogue (and mosque and church) shootings, antisemitic cartoons, discrimination by both Christian foster care agencies and Dyke Marches – we have seen this before and had hoped never again. Why now? And wha…
 
The rumble in the desert between siblings. Why is it us vs. them? Who are the Goyim? [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast directly in iTunes. [RSS MP3] Add the Kol Hadash Podcast feed (in MP3 format) Listen (MP3)โดย Rabbi Adam Chalom
 
In a post-modern, post-revelation world, defining good and evil is challenging and yet necessary. Can we admit when we have done wrong, and can we accept when our opponents do right? What is an honest difference of opinion, and what is truly evil that must be resisted? [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast directly in iTunes. [RSS MP3] Add the Kol Hada…
 
The smaller the world gets, the harder it is to live together. Some would abolish all borders and barriers, while others would raise them higher. As America builds walls, as Israelis and “Diaspora” Jews grow farther apart, we grapple with complex identities: individuals, Americans, part of the Jewish family, and human beings. Can we feel connected …
 
Rejection and fear of "the other" is deeply rooted in human psychology and culture. Can we build group loyalty on positive attraction rather than suspicion of the outside? An open family that includes both "us" and "them" may be the most successful future for the Jewish people in the 21st Century. [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast directly in iTune…
 
The eternal battle between individual and community defines the human and the Jewish condition. What to give to others and what to guard for myself? Happiness, freedom, dignity, justice depend on the balance of me and we. [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast directly in iTunes.

Competition has its place, but also its risks. We become blind to our own faults and exaggerate the danger and deficiencies of “the other.” We magnify our needs and minimize theirs. We need to seek self-esteem while avoiding chauvinism – as individuals, ethnicities and nations. Pride, honesty and humility dance a challenging but necessary waltz tow…
 
We can be crueler to our own family than we are to strangers. It is all too easy to judge others by our own arbitrary standards. Do they agree with us? Do they value what we value as much as we value it? Do they live t veir lives the way we live ours? If we can worry more about ourselves than what others do, we might just learn there’s more than on…
 
Can a tradition of 3,000 years speak with one voice? Too often, we want our identity to fully endorse our personal beliefs and behavior. Just as we cannot claim that all Jews were always secular, others cannot claim Jews were always religious and always united by religion. How can we achieve unity without demanding uniformity? [iTunes] Subscribe to…
 
We must find a balance between individual perspective and objective reality. There are times it is appropriate tosay, “I don’t know” or “I think,” and there are also times to say, “I DO know.” Human reason is limited — andpartial, and collaborative — and it is also a powerful tool for discovering human truth.

We would love it if the righteous were rewarded, the wicked punished, and everything worked out for our benefit. But wishing does not make it so. In the absence of cosmic providence, the work of justice, compassion, forgiveness and self-improvement is up to us. [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast directly in iTunes.

The Jewish "Days of Awe" were traditionally a time of judgment – who would live, who would die, and who would earn a portion in the World to Come. We believe in life before death, making the most of our time in this life, the only one we know. Living the best we can while we are here is the best we can do. [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast directly…
 
Our Humanism is a positive emphasis on this world – what we experience, what we need, what we can know. Our Rosh Hashana does not represent divine creation of the world; rather, it encourages us to discover what the universe truly is, and then to create the world we want.

We celebrate what we share rather than argue the unprovable. Our individual beliefs do not always have to agree in order to find community and common ground. Ours is a Jewish tradition of change, diversity and integrity. And, as Humanistic Rabbi Sherwin Wine once wrote, "Believing is better than non-believing." [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast dir…
 
Human beings are the most powerful species on the planet, but this was not always so. In a fascinating exploration of our earliest origins through the evolution of modern society, Hebrew University professor Yuval Noah Harari's bestseller delves into the origins of society, religion, economics and much more. Rabbi Chalom's review also marked the re…
 
Taking responsibility is not easy, particularly when others prefer seeking excuses or spreading blame. Dignity and self-respect are children of responsibility, but so too are risk and failure. The confidence we find from taking charge of our lives flows through our actions to the world around us, transforming desire into will, and will into reality…
 
Forgiveness can repair relationships, and it can also be healing for both parties in the conflict. But can we learn to forgive ourselves? Guilt is a powerful emotion, and forgiving others can sometimes be easier than facing our guilt. If Yom Kippur is an opportunity for new beginnings, we need to start fresh with ourselves as well. [iTunes] Subscri…
 
We want so much to control our lives, and our deaths. Yet experience teaches again and again that we may steer the boat, but we cannot control the current. Learning when and how to say goodbye — and when and how to accept death with dignity — is key to the art of living. [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast directly in iTunes. [RSS MP3] Add the Kol Ha…
 
As awful as human suffering can be, it can be even harder to suffer alone without understanding or empathy. The most basic step in overcoming conflict and isolation is an ability we evolved countless generations ago: to speak, and to truly listen. [iTunes] Subscribe to the Podcast directly in iTunes.

No one is an island. We grow up in families and societies, and we learn the balance between mutual responsibility and self-actualization. In the space between obligation and freedom lies “help” – a hand we all need from time to time that gives us the strength to do for ourselves what we no longer need others to do unto us. [iTunes] Subscribe to the…
 
The Theory of Evolution transformed our understanding of the world and our place in it. And Charles Darwin knew it would; he held back publishing his ideas for many years because of it. Today we understand not only biology, but also culture and economics and many other human endeavors through gradual change over time and "survival of the fittest." …
 
Without cosmic judgment, Yom Kippur becomes an internal experience – self-judgment and self-forgiveness. In moderation, both are healthy and important, but only if they lead to changed behavior in the future. In the negotiation between individual self-fulfillment and communal responsibility lies the dignity of proving ourselves to be good people, i…
 
The religious approach to life has been around for a long time. Believing that people, and only people, have conscious power to improve the world is a much more recent innovation, even if its evolutionary ancestors first appeared centuries ago. But people do terrible things, and some fight modernity and progress with all their might. Is a Humanisti…
